    Default Getting a girl's e-mail as oppose to number.

    I'm on the verge of finishing David Deangelo's Double your Dating book and I'm at the part where he advocates that getting a girl's e-mail is better than her number for a couple of reasons. First..a lot of girls tend to give away their numbers for one reason or another-but not that many guys ask for e-mail. Second...girls tend to respond a lot quicker to e-mail (they can also respond to it at any time) as oppose to calling (not to mention, you actually have to reach them via calling). Now, I usually get numbers with ease, but I'm now wondering if I should start trying to get a girl's e-mail instead. What do you the experts think?

    In my opinion I think you should just keep getting the number. Emailing girls would just be too much work and not a lot of women really pay attention to their emails. If getting numbers for you work then why change it to something you're not really familiar with?
    You lose some you win some, learn from your mistakes and get better!

    I think e-mail may have been useful when people chatted on MSN Messenger, AOL Messenger and Yahoo Messenger. You could get their e-mail and add them as friends.

    With smart phone apps like Snapchat, BBM and Whatsapp people rarely use e-mail. David DeAngelo hasn't updated a lot of his material to accommodate the recent trends.

    Get her phone number and work on your text game.

    Very good point. His book came out in 2001, and his 2nd edition in 2005? A lot of his material is very interesting and solid, but the e-mail is a very outdated technique at this point in time.

    Stick to phone game.
    Always be honest with women. That's the true meaning of a PUA.

    I think a lot of the advice in that book is dubious. And unlike some of the other gurus I can't find much evidence that he's as good with women as he claims. I think he just found out he could make some money.

    I'm going to have to disagree with this. I just read the book recently and he makes allot of good points in the book. I think his thinking on mixed signals is great. Also, cocky-funny is truly golden. After reading his book I was like "holy crap, I'm cocky-funny with every girl I'm not interested in and they always like me". The friends thing can work too. All the girls I've been FWB with I would always tell them "I just want to be friends with you" but I would sleep with them. After repeatedly sleeping with them I would keep telling them I want to be friends. This would cause them to fall in love. I didn't purposely do this, I actually meant it, but it really worked.

    The book is more about indirect game and I have been going more direct recently because it fits my personality better. Although, when I was younger and went indirect I would do things similar to what he advocates and I had success.

    The whole e-mail thing is outdated. When David D. wrote this book people didn't text message. I remember getting my first text around 2003 and I was like "wtf is a text message??" I immediately called the girl and told her not to text me if she wanted to talk. Nowadays texting is popular. Get the number. If you look at his online game section he talks about AOL, nobody uses that anymore!

    I want to make a good point, when david de angelo wrote that, it was before everyone used texting as the preferred method of communicating.

    texting has the same advantage e-mailing does (that she doesn't have to answer right away) think about it as "e-mailing her phone"

    however I have seen a new phenomenon that girls are more willing to give you their face book info over their number (especially if they aren't as attracted)

    but if you have played solid game then just get the number and don't be a wuss about it.
